Protecting Neighborhoods

Land Management Ordinance TEXT AMENDMENTS - ROUND 3

The City is working on both short- and long-term solutions to regulate development around single-family homes in Greenville neighborhoods.

To provide protection to neighborhoods while the City works to update its Land Management Ordinance (LMO), City Council adopted a resolution in April 2021 directing staff to address design and dimension standards and project and buffering requirements. The amendments apply to non-residential uses and multi-family uses that are adjacent to detached single-family homes.

Current Ordinance Proposed Change

Currently, the Land Management Ordinance does not provide specific parking reductions for adaptive reuse projects.

We propose creating eligibility criteria for applicants to qualify for a parking reduction on adaptive reuse projects.


Status: pending consideration by City Council in August

Neighborhood Meetings

Current Ordinance Proposed Change
Z-29-2021
Currently, a neighborhood meeting is only required for a rezoning request, major subdivision or special exception for a bed and breakfast inn.

We propose expanding the neighborhood meeting requirement to multi-family uses and any application that requires a public hearing, where the proposed project abuts an existing single-family detached use. The amendment also strongly encourages attendance at these meetings and establishes appropriate elements to include within the staff report.
